If they can extend M-1 north of 8 Mile, I can see a real utility. I don't think the 3.3 miles is going to cut it. I recall that Ferndale was pushing for a line that reached them. Of course, it could go all the way to Pontiac, but I imagine that the Birmingham portion might not have any stops. :)

It would be great if the New Center part jogged west to the Fisher Building. The longer the Woodward portion, the more sense branches will make.

The Oakland County executive, as you well know, hates the fuck out of Detroit. Until that miserable old man does the 21st century a favor and dies, there's not going to be any regional cooperation. Full Stop.
